  20. Hello guys, after googling i came on this website, it looks pretty cool, alot of information. already have been on the IRC chat for a few times. well, this is my story. I am Erwin Kats, 20 years old i live in holland, near the west coast ( always bad weather , heat vibrations from the sea, alot of light pollution ) i started astronomy 10 years ago after buying an 50€ telescope. 2 years later i had an ETX 70 as a present from my grandma. it.... went broken after 1,5 years ( thanks to meade germany i received a brand new etx 70 ) then i bought an Meade Model 4500 114mm newton. around 2 years later i bougth an Meade LX90 8'' ( wanted to do more planets/ piggy back photography ) after upgrading the LX90 alot , and putting the vork mounted to the test... the DEC motor unit died... then i really wanted to do more with DSO photography. so i bought an losmandy G-11 with an stellarvue 102 ED apo ( had alot of problems with the stellarvue, stupid focuser ) i first was thinking about the usage of CCD camera, but becuase i am also an normal photographer i wanted to try my DSLR's untill today i still use my not modified eos 350D, but i didn't had much time to use it, Rubbish weather next to that, i also have been live broadcasting the planets and moon on my website, but because of scripting problems it doesn't work at the moment. i am also making an website with a friend of my for only HA solar views ( we got 1 lunt 60mm HA, 1 lunt 60mm CAK, 1PST ha ) i think that was it all ow yeas i forgot. in the mean while i also got Vixen r200SS orion 80mm F11,4 for guidescope lx90 8'' SCT ota stellarvue 102 ED apo and alot of other Rubbish, will make a topic in equipment.
